Prominent journalist who was killed in Ukraine buried in Belarus
Ukrainian and Belarusian journalist Pavlo Sheremet, who was killed in a car bombing in Kyiv on July 20, was buried on Saturday in Minsk.
Residents of the Belarusian capital were bringing flowers to pay their last tribute to the slain journalist.
On July 22, thousands of mourners gathered in Kyiv, including friends, colleagues, lawmakers, and government officials, among them President Petro Poroshenko.
Pavlo Sheremet worked for the news website Ukrainska Pravda, which is noted for investigative work, and remained editor of a news website in Belarus.
Sheremet was driving to a radio station to do a morning show two days earlier when the bomb exploded. The Interior Ministry said the explosives were "skillfully" planted underneath the car and that the blast may have been set off by a "remote-controlled or delayed-action" detonator.
